My Favorite Salsa
10 tomatillos, husks removed
2 or 3 serrano chile peppers (or one habanero if you want it hotter)
1 clove garlic
Boil tomatillos in water until skins come off with a pop. Blend all ingredients in blender or food processer.
Add one chopped medium-sized onion
and about 1/2 cup chopped cilantro.
And I have to admit, my all time favorite salsa is a vinegar laden canned variety (I guess the white trash version). This is from a recipe book my mom got in the 70's. A local radio station (KFMB) used to mail these booklets out all the time. I love this so much that when it's around, I'll eat salsa burritos (as in salsa rolled up in a tortilla. I know, it's sick, but I love it so).
1 large can solid pack tomatoes (cut up)
1 can can green ortega chile peppers (cut up)
2 bell peppers, diced
1 large onion, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
1 small glass red wine vinegar (about 1/2 cup)
Mix all ingredients together and chill. Can be used as a cold sauce on hot meats, or as a tasty dip with Fritos or corn chips).
